The Chestnut Burr 
For 1950 

Long ago, students kept what they called "memory books". These were 
scrapbooks made up of programs, snapshots and other incidentals 
which to each student made up the worthwhile things of his stay in 

Out of these scrapbooks grew the present-day yearbook or "annual". 

A yearbook, of necessity, is an attempt on the part of the few to 
satisfy the many. It tries to be all things to all people. 

The CHESTNUT BURR for 1950 is such an attempt. The largest 
staff in the history of the CHESTNUT BURR has compiled lists, taken 
photographs, drawn pictures and written stories to give the students 
of KENT STATE UNIVERSITY their memory book. 

As the years go on we hope the memory value of our efforts will be 
increased many times.

The Arts Building 

An unofficial ground-breaking ceremony on October 13, 
1949, started work on the new Practical Arts building 
which will house the school of Art and the Industrial Arts 

The §800,000 building will contain studios for art, work- 
shops for industrial arts and pre-engineering courses, and 
offices and class rooms for all of these. 

The Arts building is the University's fifth major construc- 
tion since the war.

Photographic Short Course 

The eighth annual Short Course in News 
Photography was offered America s news 
photographers in the spring of 1949. 

Over 350 photographers and some of 
their bof es attended this three-day sym- 
posium on new techniques and gadgets. 

The Photographic Short course is one 
of many offered by the school of Journal- 
ism. Among others are: Radio, Public 
Relations, Industrial Editors and a one- 
day high school journalists' convention. 

Such things as strobe lights, color, 
groupings and manufacturer's exhibits 
are discussed at the course. 

An exhibit which fills Wills gym is an 
annual feature. This year's choice of 
winners brought the school much criti- 
cism from such sources as Editor and 
Publisher, and the photographers them-

With the traditional painting of the "K" behind 
Rockwell library by Miss Lillian Torgler, the sweet- 
heart of Delta Upsilon fraternity, the annual Campus 
day festivities were officially opened. 

The May pole dance and the crowning of Miss 
Camilla Caine as Campus day Queen were the high- 
lights of the early afternoon. 

As hundreds of spectators looked on, the Kent State 
University band sounded the opening note which 
marked the beginning of the parade of gaily decorated 

The winning floats were presented by Beta Gamma 
sorority, Delta Upsilon fraternity and Phi Sigma 
club, independent. 

In the evening a crowd gathered in front of Lowry 
hall to hear songs by the Greek organizations. Kappa 
Sig's delivery of "Hospodi Pomiloi" won first in the 
fraternity competition, while Delta Gamma's arrange- 
ment of "There are Such Things" won top honors for 
that sorority. 

The day's program ended as couples gathered in 
Will's gym to dance to the music of Frankie Rey- 
nolds and his orchestra and to witness the presenta- 
tion of trophies won during the day.

poop deck" Kent State university invaded Brady Lake 
park for its 9th Annual Rowboat Regatta. 

In the rowing competition Kappa Sigma Chi out- 
maneuvered Gamma Tau Delta; Delta Gamma, in the 
sorority division had little trouble and Phi Sigma club 
lead the independents.

and sighs were heard as eleven bathing beauties, can- 
didates for Queen of the Regatta, paraded before the 
judge's stand. Joan Hammelsmith was crowned queen. 
She was sponsored by Alpha Phi Beta fraternity.

Kent State university's thirty-sixth annual com- 
mencement held June 11, 1949, in the school gym- 
nasium saw seven hundred and six degrees awarded 
including twelve master degrees. 

The College of Education graduated 205; Liberal 
Arts, 206; and Business Administration, 283. 

One hundred and sevent)'-six students had 3.0 aver- 
ages for four years including 2 Summa Cum Laude, 
14 Magna Cum Laude and 58 Cum Laude. Dr. Ralph 
W. Sockxnan, of the Christ Church in New York City 
delivered the commencement address. 



University Theater 

Experimental, controversial, and significant were some of the 
adjectives used to describe Wanhope Building, University 
Theater's major production in the 1949 spring quarter. The 
play was an experiment in combining music, dancing and dra- 
matics with symbolic sets, action and people to arrive at the 
solution to life. 

Between the scenes the H.P.E. department furnished a mod- 
ern dance group for interpretative dancing. A nine-piece or- 
chestra played original music and orchestrations by Al Daniels 
and Don Erb, music students here. 

Leading roles were handled by Al Newman as Flashy Page, 
Marge Harbaugh as Maggie, and Jim lacoazzo as 4F and the 
Quizmaster. Some of the actors handled several roles. Gene Tag- 
gert and Bill Zuchero enacted five parts each while Bill McGraw 
and Dolores Clark took care of four apiece. Prof. Wes Egan 
was the director. 

Years Ago, the summer session effort was a little lighter. It 
was a humorous, autobiographical play concerning a New 
England family. Written by Ruth Gordon, directed by Prof. 
Earl Curtis, the play cast included high school pupils as well 
as students from the university.

Big-Little Sister Tea 

The annual Big-Little Sister tea, sponsored this year by 
Women's League, was held Sunday, October 16, from 3 to 5 
pm in Moulton music room. Co-chairmen of the affair were 
Alice Godfrey and Del Kne. 

The girls were received by Dean Ada Hyatt, Dean Rema 
Sanders and the officers of Women's League and the co-chair- 

Refreshments were served, after which the girls chatted in- 
formally. The purpose of the tea was to promote friendship be- 
tween old and new students. 

A three-piece musical ensemble consisting of Frances Stone, 
Lillie Ansevin and Amelia Espinosa, provided entertainment. 

Betty Hartwick has a name tag pinned on by Alarge Mayerriik.

"Salutes, yessirs, and snap." That tells half the story of 
the Reserve Officers Training Corps. Only three years 
old, it has been selected as one of the outstanding units 
of the 2nd Army area. 

This year saw two major national military honor 
societies come to the campus. Pershing Rifles is for 
the outstanding members in drill. Scabbard and Blade 
honors junior and senior cadets. 

Not content to just hold meetings, both of these 
organizations provide honor guards for various occa- 
sions, such as Homecoming, Armistice day and Cam- 
pus day. 

Colonel Thomas F. Wall, commanding officer, is 
sponsor of the Booster club, and a special R. O. T. C. 
band plays at all pep rallies. 

A dance band is also boasted by the cadets. Com- 
posed of top-notch musicians, all of whom have played 
with "name" orchestras, it has seen service at many 
informal gatherings. 

The corps has its own newspaper, a weekly, which 
does the double duty of passing on official information, 
and giving the cadets the "word" on everything from 
wombats to dances. 

Shooting in inter-university and match competition, 
the Rifle team has won many contests and honors. It 
has fired in the Hearst Rifle matches, and several in- 
vitational tournaments. 

Top event of the social season was the Military Ball, 
at which the Honorary Colonel and her attendants 
were announced.

Homecoming Queen Phyllis Young with her attend- 
ants, Gerry Tarmichael and Alice Romanchuk reigned 
over a successful Homecoming day. The weather was 
brisk, but cool, Kent trounced Connecticut 27 to 0, 
the fraternity and sorority houses were extravagantly 
decorated, ]ohn Loves Mary played to a full house, 
and Wills gym was packed for the dance. 

Jack Mancos and Wib Little were offensive stars 
who helped hand the University of Connecticut Hus- 
kies a drubbing. 

During half-time Irv Wheatley, president of Stu- 
dent council crowned Phyllis Young Queen of Home- 
coming while the band played a serenade. President 
Bowman spoke a few words of welcome to the alumni 
and stated that he expected the fine day to continue. 

George Scriven and Bob Weil of Chi Pi, 
men's honorary journalism fraternity sold

In the house decoration contest, Stopher hall won in 
the dormitory division with 140 points out of a pos- 
sible 150. Alpha Gamma Delta and Beta Gamma tied 
for the prize in the sorority section while Phi Beta Phi 
won over the other fraternities. 

John Loves Mary played its last night after hanging 
up two records for productions here. Thursday night 
had been the biggest opening night and Friday the 
biggest night for any University Theater production. 

Queen Phyllis presented trophies for the house 
decorations during the intermission at the dance. The 
Homecoming crowd danced in the darkened gym to 
the music of Freddy Arthur and his orchestra from 
9 to 1.

Frosh Week 

This year's dink-domed Freshman crop attacked the seal at Prentice Gate with "Bab-o," 
"Old Dutch" and "Ajax" the foaming cleanser, as in years past with apparent gusto. 

As an introduction to KSU traditions, a special pep assembly, cheers and songs were 
explained to freshmen who proved later that youth could be heard as well as seen. 

"Frosh Day," designated as the day for freshmen to let their hair down was so successful 
it will be repeated in 1950. Sitting in a special section at the Akron-Kent football game, 
the freshies let loose with loud cheers acquired at a special pre-game pep session. 

The freshmen footballers enjoyed a particularly good season with wins over Bowling 
Green, Mount Union and the University of Akron, and no losses. To cheer the team on 
to victory, a freshman cheerleading squad was organized with varsity cheerleader Andy 
Mangione directing the group.

Whether it's a master's thesis or a letter home, you'll 
find that Rockwell library provides helpful reference 
material and an atmosphere conducive to thought. 

For reference there are nearly 100,000 volumes 
and more than 700 current periodicals on the shelves. 
For atmosphere, there are quiet study rooms, high 
ceilings and big windows. 

The library continues to grow with the university. 

Approximately 9000 books were added this year plus 
a recording rental section. 

Planning on the part of John B. Nicholson, Jr.. 
head librarian, and his staff, has transformed a build- 
ing with a seating capacity of 400 into an efficient 
institution which now serves an average of 1800 
persons daily.

Over 178,000 meals are served by the Food 
Service per quarter at KSU, by 70 full-time 
employees, 150 students and 8 dietitians. 

Five cafeterias, Stopher, Terrace Lodge, Kent 
State union. East and West Lowry operate on 
a group purchasing plan with each cafeteria as 
a self -supporting unit.The West Lowry cafeteria 
is open to cash customers and off-campus stu- 
dents; the Student union serves faculty and 
Engleman hall girls, and the other cafeterias are 

closed save to invited guests. 

Two new cafeterias were opened this year — 
those in Stopher hall and the Kent State union 
with more to be opened as more new dorms 
are finished. 

The main purpose of the cafeteria system is 
to furnish adequate nourishing food to the stu- 
dents in all the residence halls at a reasonable 
cost per meal.

This years crop of human bouncing balls diligently performed at all athletic activities throughout 
the year. New cheers were introduced at pep rallies in order to further spur the Golden Flashes to 
victory. They succeeded as is shown by the records of the Blue and Gold teams. 

Believing the trite phrase that "practice makes perfect", they diligently went through their 
antics in weekly sessions designed to better their jumping technique. Led by John Parsons, they 
improved their timing until all ten "elbow-benders ' pogo-sticked up and down in perfect unison.

of Caro AI. Carapetyan. 

Four musical organizations combined their talents to present the traditional per- 
formance of the Messiah under direction of the talented baton of Caro M. Carapet-

Middle: Seven doctors and graduate assistants make up the staff of the Psychology clinic. 

Bottom: Reading is thinking" is the slogan of the reading clinic. 

Organized here in 1945, by Prof. John R. Montgom- 
ery, the Speech and Hearing clinic attempts to develop 
competent field workers and classroom teachers who 
can handle the variety of problems found in the field. 

Patients include children of preschool age, students 
of public schools and students of the university. 
Working with persons having speech and hearing 
diflficulties gives the therapy majors opportunities 
to learn through actual clinical application. 

Assisting Prof. Montgomery are: Eleanor L. Gray, 
associate professor of speech and numerous graduate 
and undergraduate students. 

The Psychology clinic during the fall of 1949 ren- 
dered mental hygiene assistance to 246 persons as 
compared to 142 in the same period the preceding 

The clinic's aim and methods are to help the pa- 
tient to help himself. The goals the clinic desires the 
students to achieve are: attainment of the best aca- 
demic rating within the limits of his capabilities, 
participation in extracurricular activities which would 
be most helpful to him and learning to get along with 
others in an effective and mature manner. 

Assisting Dr. Winslow at the clinic are: Mrs. Mary 
R. Cochran, Dr. Harold Paine, graduate assistants 
Roy Duffy, Shirley Durand and Mrs. Flora Beck. Dr. 
Charles L. Langsam, Cleveland psychiatrist, visits the 
clinic once a week. 

Striving always to produce faster readers with an 
understanding of what they have read, the Reading 
clinic is now recognized as a vital function on campus. 

The clinic is under the direction of Dr. Leslie W. 
Garnett, professor of English, with Mrs. John B. 
Nicholson assisting as instructor. Miss Jane King, 
student, is executive secretary. 

"Reading is thinking" is the slogan of the clinic, 
preferably called a department by its director. Instruc- 
tors urge students to think while reading the printed 

Quarterly, more than 400 students are helped with 
their reading habits, most of them coming into the 
clinic voluntarily. 

Along with her clinic work, Dr. Garnett helps 
Freshmen improve their reading abilities by offering 
services through the orientation classes. 
. Mrs. Nicholson instructs the students on how to 
organize, evaluate and remember the ideas they 

Besides her interest in Freshman groups. Dr. 
Garnett takes particular pride in helping smdents

Stopher Hall 

The first permanent men's dormitory on campus, Stopher hall, 
was conceived many years ago, begun during the spring of 1947 
and dedicated December 17, 1949. 

Perched on the crest of the hill behind the heating plant, the 
million-dollar dormitory opened its doors to 270 students last 
September. Named after Emmet C. Stopher, late registrar of the 
university, Stopher hall is only one of many steps in the expan- 
sion of Kent State university. 

The dorm has 135 sleeping rooms, a loimge on each floor and 
a combination office-desk-mailroom on the main floor. 

The ground floor lounge is used as a receiving room, the second 
and third floor lounges have television sets donated by the Terrace 
Lodge funds of 1947-49 and the fourth floor lounge is used as a 
meeting place. 

Full-time employment of three maids, one janitor and a dozen 

students to run the desk and switchboard, are required to clean 
and maintain the building. All students clean their own rooms 
with equipment located in supply rooms on each floor. 

The cafeteria, housed in the long, low east wing, is the largest 
single room in the hall. Split into two sections, the larger con- 
tains almost 100 tables and the serving line, while the smaller 
contains the storage rooms and kitchen. Fifteen full-time em- 
ployees and several dozen students serve 20 meals per week. 

Above the cafeteria is a sundeck for the use of all residents. 

Clean modern design is featured throughout the building. 
Pastel walls, green leather lounge furniture and paintings con- 
tributed by the Art school beautify the lounges. All sleeping 
rooms have maple furniture. Modern fire-proofing and an excel- 
lent lighting system make Stopher hall a good place for living 
and seeing. 

The spacious lounge 

zed by light walnut woodwork and green leather fu 

four lounges have teleri.

Christmas on Campus 

Santa Claus, in the form of Steve Bizic, passed out gifts to Kent State 
revelry makers during intermission of the Holiday Hop, and the Christmas 
season was formally ushered onto the campus. Roland Gamble's orchestra 
provided the dancing music to a capacity crowd in Wills gym. 

Bizic also played a red-nosed Santa at the Stopher Hall Christmas party, 
given by the residents for underprivileged children of Kent. Gifts, paid 
for by contributions from all Stopherites, were distributed to the gleeful 
youngsters in an afternoon loaded with ice cream and cake. 

The Wesley players, a Methodist group, presented Dickens' "Christmas 
Carol" to the students in a special program directed by Richard Banker, 
and the United Christian fellowship did an original play by Robert J. 
MacDonald called "Christmas Under the Stars". 

Caroling was the order of the day as sororities, fraternities, and dorm- 
itory residents saluted each other with songs of holiday cheer. The Mad- 
rigal singers presented a program of sacred and popular carols in the 
auditorium. And not to be outdone, several off-campus houses of men 
strolled up and down Kent streets giving vent to their Christmas spirit. 

Those living in dorms, fraternity and sorority houses decorated their 
windows, doorways and lounges with colored lights, tinsel, bright bubbles, 
green pine trees and the traditional holly. Occasionally a green sprig of 
mistletoe was seen poking its cheery berries from among the decorations in 
many a Greek house in expectation of coming holiday parties.

Winner of this, the fourth annual Kappa-Sigma-Nu-Chi 
homecoming was Sigma Nu, by 7 to 0. Since the inception 
of the series, the G.I. Jug, symbol of victory has alternared 
between the two fraternities. 

Nancy Hise reigned as queen with Miriam Mitchell and 
Marilyn Ohrgren as attendants. They were presented dur- 
mg half-time at the game along with other entertainment 
by the Kappa Sig band and a little slap-stick.

New Classes 

Three classes designed to keep students abreast of the changing 
times were offered for the first time this year, two of them under 
the direction of the School of Journalism while the third was the 
result of the coordinated efforts of several departments. 

Those offered by the School of Journalism were courses in tele- 
vision and movie-making. The movie course initiated the pro- 
spective journalists into the technicalities of shooting, processing, 
cutting and editing movie film with the emphasis on the presen- 
tation of news in moving-picture form for use on television. 
From there on the television course ironed out the difficulties of 
the actual presentation over video, of the movies made by the 
movie class, slides and scripts. 

The movie and television classes were under the direction of 
Mr. Henry Beck and Prof. Carleton J. Smyth, respectively. 

A litde broader in aspect, the course entitled "Problems of the 
Atomic Age" was presented by representatives of numerous de- 
partments plus outside speakers. 

The plan of the course moved from consideration of the physi- 
cal side of atomic energy, explained for the layman, to the ethical 
questions involved in the use of nuclear energy in peaceful ways 
as well as in the form of the BOMB. 

Suggested by a student in a term paper on the subject, the idea 
was developed by the heads of the departments involved. These 
departments are: physics, biology, chemistry, geography, geology, 
history, political science, sociology, economics, psychology and 

Dr. George K. Schoepfle, head of the physics department, was 
immediately responsible for the conduct of the class, but credit 
hours have not been established as being in any one department.

The new bowling alleys provided bctiieen da. 



Open for inspection in December and officially at the beginning 
of the winter quarter, the new student center replaced the old, 
"temporary" Hub. 

Some of the attractions include a soda fountain, lounge, ball- 
room, check room, over-sized juke box, game room and a cen- 
trally controlled loud speaker system. 

Raymond K. Moran, formerly of the athletic department, was 
put in charge of the whole affair. 

In the game room are various forms of self-enterainment, such 
as pool tables, pingpong and shuflleboard. The recreation room 
offers a place to play cards as well as watch television. 

On the top floor are rooms which are used for organizational 

One of the biggest points of improvement over the old Hub is 
the fact one can see through, whereas in the old place the smoke 
cut off vision at about 15 feet.

Each photographer on the staff was invited to submit 
a picture which, in his estimation, characterized some 
portion of the campus scene. 

The power plant apparently characterized the 
campus to many of the photographers. The inevitable 
smokestack which dominates the campus from almost 
every angle on campus seems appropriate to begin 
this section of the book. The heating plant comes in 
for more treatment with a closeup of the entrance and 
an interpretative treatment showing students and the 

An aerial view showing all the new buildings and 
the farthest reaches of the campus as of January, 1950, 
also seems in order. The first snow is again shown in a 
scene taken in front of iVIerrill hall. Modern Dance, 
a little-known campus scene, finishes this section of 
campus pictures.

Dr. Raymond M. Clark, Director of the Graduate 
school of Kent State university, has been teaching 
for 37 years, 23 of which have been spent at Kent. 
The former professor in psychology and acting 
president of the university in 1943-44 has the usual 
string of degrees to go with his title of Director. They 
are: BS in Education, Ohio university (1917); MA, 
Columbia (1923) and Ph.D, Western Reserve 


Kent State's Graduate school offers degrees in all fields reg- 
ularly taught at the university except in music and journalism. 

The school was under the guidance of the late registrar, 
Emmet C. Stopher, until 1947 when Dr. Raymond M. Clark 
took over as director of the school as it began to expand after 
the war. 

The school's requirements include 40 hours of classroom 
work plus a five-hour thesis. One year residence on campus or 
three summer sessions of 11 weeks must be applied toward a 

285 degrees have been granted since the school's beginning 
in 1935; 129 of these have been in Education. 

Winter of 1950 saw 270 students enrolled in the school — 
214 men and 56 women. They represented 75 undergraduate 
schools. Of these 120 students had received their Bachelor's 
degrees from Kent State.

the ropes. Having lost their freshman's bewilderment and 
their sophomore's pathoria of unintelligible information, 
this pre-senior group will have another year to lounge at

They have sampled all the campus activities, selected the

The absence of the usual festive worship given the grad-

left the class of '50 lamenting this departure.

A series of ups and downs marked the '49 five-win tliiee-loss record for the 
Golden Wave eleven. Starting off with a jarring defeat at the hands of Western 
Reserve, the Blue and Gold bounced back to take Mount Union, then revert, 
falling before Ohio U. 

Following the Bobcat defeat, they appeared to hit the comeback trail as they 
bowled over Central Michigan and UConn, but came Bowling Green and another 
loss. However, the season wound up in good style as Akron and Northern Illi- 
nois fell before the wave. 

The season marked the fourth year of coaching by Trev Rees as the university 
eleven emerged from pre-war obscurity to at least partial prominence. 

Wilbur Little, out for three games due to a glandular operation, roared back 
against Central Michigan. In that game, the "Newcomerstown Express " rolled 
for his collegiate mile of yardage. Against UConn, "Wib" uncorked some fine 
broken field running and showed his blocking ability as he cleared the way for 
Jack Mancos on a TD run. 

Mancos, who took over Little's place when "Wib" was on the injured list, turn- 
ed in performances that assured him of a first string place when Little returned. 
A constant yardage gainer, he proved to be the top ground gainer of '49. 

Quarterback Jerry Turtle passed his way to fame as he completed nine TD pass- 
es plus having a perfect day against Akron U. On the receiving end of several 
of his passes was Jim Coll, outstanding end. 

On the defense, end Rudy Gerbitz and backs Ed Capri, Bob Pease and Howie 
Wolfgram held the opposition to 18 touchdowns while the offensive squad 
rolled for 24 six-pointers. 

The linemen not only opened holes for the Flash backs, but kept the opponents 
from using the Flash forward wall as a highway. Chief among the "boys in the 
front row" were George Kovalick, Pete Ahern, Frank Klein and Bill Blanken- 

Still using the two platoon system, the Blue and Gold turned in a credible 
season. It marked the second time that U. of Conn, had lost to KSU and also the 
fourth straight year of progressively worse beatings given to our arch-rival 
Akron U.

With 6000 disappointed and rain-soaked fans in the 
Memorial field stands, the 1949 Golden Wave drop- 
ped their season opener to the Red Cats of Western 
Reserve, 23-20. 

Entering the game as favorites even without the 
services of All-Ohio halfback Wilbur Little, the 
Flashes trailed from the 12 -minute mark on. Quarter- 
back Jerry Turtle kept the Blue and Gold in the con- 
test with three touchdown passes, two to Jack Mancos 
and one to Ed Capri. 

A last-minute drive carried the KSU eleven to the 
visitors, 15 -yard line but the clock ran out before the 
score could be made. 

Mount Union wound up on the record books as win 
number one for the '49 issue of the Golden Wave. 
Trailing the I\irple Raiders 2-0 by virtue of a touch- 
back in the first period, the Flashes scored late the 
same period but missed the extra point. 

Another touchback for Mount came before the 
Blue and Gold scored again midway in the final 
stanza and added the extra point. With 50 seconds 
to play, the visitors roared back to score, add the 
point after touchdown, and end the evening's enter- 

Over 8,000 fans viewed the contest which gave 
KSU win number four out of an 11 -game series play- 
ed with the Raiders. 

Jack Mancos sparked the Blue and Gold squad, 
setting up both TD's via runs of 34 and Yl yards.

Before a near capacity crowd packed in the Ohio 
university stadium, the Golden Wave dropped their 
second game of the season to the Bobcats, 34-6. 

The first half saw the university eleven battle the 
undefeated Cats to a 7-6 score, but from the opening 
kick of the last half, the Ohio university combine 
shifted into high and never gave the Flashes a decent 
scoring opportunity. 

KSU's six points came via a Bobcat fumble on their 
own 36-yard line. Recovered by Flash tackle Bill 
Blankenship, it took seven plays before quarterback 
Jerry Turtle scored on a quarterback sneak. The kick 
for the extra point was blocked. 

From that point until the final gun sounded, the 
Flashes were occupied with the line-bucking Cat 
fullback Quinn Stumpf and the passing of Chuck 
Norman as Ohio U. rolled to four more scores before 
the clock ran our. 


Pileup near Ohio's goal. 

The Golden Wave rolled to a 26-12 victory over the 
Chippewas of Central Michigan under the lights at 
Memorial stadium in their fourth tilt of the 1949 

Sparked by the return of All-Ohio back Wilbur 
Little to the lineup after a glandular operation, the 
Flashes came from behind to win. The Chips scored 
in the first quarter via a long pass, but the Blue and 
Gold hit twice before the half ended. 

The university eleven scored in each of the remain- 
ing periods, while the visitors scored again in the 
final quarter again by way of the aerial route. 

Little rolled up his "mile" of collegiate yardage in 
the contest which saw Jim Coll play an outstanding 
game at end, catching two of Jerry Tuttle's touch- 
down passes.

The Flashes could do no wrong as they whipped the 
University of Connecticut 27-0, before a homecoming 
crowd of over 12,000 cheering fans. 

Sparked by the brilliant running of "Wib" Little, 
and Jack "Wahoo" Mancos, the Golden Wave rolled 
for a total of 446 yards. Little scored two of the Blue 
and Gold's TD's, and Mancos one. The final touch- 
down came via a pass from Turtle to Gene Vanard. 

Three times the visitors marched toward the Flash 
goal, but fine defensive play by Howie Wolfgram 
and Bob Pease stopped the Huskies each time. 

The best play of the contest came late in the third 
quarter, when Mancos took oif from the 11 -yard 
stripe and went the distance after Little cleared the 
way by some terrific down-field blocking.

For the fourth time in a row, the Flashes fell before 
the Falcons of Bowling Green. This year, by a 27-6 

A Rees-coached KSU squad has yet to take the 
measure of the Beegees and all that saved the Golden 
Wave from a shutout this year was a 5 5 -yard run for 
a touchdown by Howie Wolfgram in the closing 
minutes of the contest. 

Led by backs Jack Woodland and Mel Augenstein, 
the Falcons kept the Flashes on the run for the com- 
plete 60 minutes. The small band of KSU rooters who 
saw the contest had only Wolfgram's run and the 
standout defensive play of end Rudy Gerbitz as cheer- 
ful memories of the game.

Playing their annual tilt with Akron on a Flash field 
for the first time, the Blue and Gold gave 7,500 
happy fans an exciting afternoon as they crushed the 
hapless Zippers 47-0. 

Scoring almost at will, the Flashes first tally came 
25 seconds after play began when Bob Pease rambled 
64 yards to paydirt. Before the final gun sounded, Art 
Pardee scored twice, "Wib" Little scored twice, and 
Jim Coll and Lou Bragg each scored once. 

It was the highest score of any Zipper-Flash con- 
test, and marks the fourth straight win for the Blue 
and Gold in the series which dates back to 1934.

The good right toe of Frank Mesek, the passing of 
Jerry Tuttle and the sparkling running of "Wib" 
Little brought the '49 season to a successful close as 
the Golden Wave topped Northern Illinois 21-19. 

In a hard-fought contest from the opening kick-off 
to the final gun, the Reesmen had their work cut out 
for them. 

Wilbur Little, the "Newcomerstown Express," 
scored two touchdowns, one each in the second and 
third periods to end his college football-playing days 
in a blaze of glory. The All-Ohio halfback ran 29 
yards for his first marker and 23 yards for his other 

With less than two minutes to play, the Blue and 
Gold took over on their own 20 after Illinois missed 
a field goal attempt. With four passes by Jerry Tuttle, 
two to Mancos, one to Ertler, and a TD heave to 
Pease in the end zone, the game was put on ice. Mesek 
converted for the extra point after each touchdown.

The 1949-50 basketball season was the greatest in Kent State's history as the Golden Flashes 
piled up an 18-4 record. 

Under the guidance of Coach Dave McDowell for the second year, the local hoopsters ex- 
pected their first real battle to be at Ohio Wesleyan, but the Golden Flashes edged the highly- 
rated Bishops by seven points. 

Playing three games in the Cleveland Arena, the Staters conquered Universit)' of New 
Mexico, St. Francis of Brooklyn, and Baldwin-Wallace. 

After winning their first five games, the Flashes went to the annual Youngstown tourna- 
ment as returning champions. But they suffered a one point set-back by Youngstown's Pen- 
guins in the first round and lost by a wider margin to Muskingum in the consolation game. 

The old Wills gym single game record of 84 points fell by the way as McDowell's cagers 
netted 98 points in a runaway battle with Buffalo State. 

With their scoring eyes sharpened, the Flashes waited eagerly for the clash with the always- 
potent Akron Zippers. Few anticipated a walk-away, but the McDowellmen romped over 
their rivals by 26 points. 

Marietta came to the local court sporting the highest scoring average in the Ohio Con- 
ference. It was in this game that the Staters, who at that time were second highest in the 
point-gathering department, displayed their greatest defensive ability, holding the potent 
bucketeers to 55 markers, 18 under their season average. 

Goodyear gym, Akron, was the scene of the remrn KSU-Akron encounter. After battling 
through 40 minutes, packed with fouls, the two teams were deadlocked, 60-60. The Zippers 
netted four points in the overtime period, two more than Kent could tally, and the arch- 
rivals called things even for the season. 

The lowest score in Ohio college basketball circles was the result of the Kent-Mount Union 
game on the Alliance court. A grand total of 46 points were scored as the Staters failed to 
stop the stalling freeze-out tactics of the Purple Raiders. 

Recognition for this record-breaking season followed the Flashes trouncing of Western 
Reserve in what was the last varsity cage clash in Wills gym. 

Director of Athletics, Trevor J. Rees, invited Captain Fred Klaisner to organize an alumni 
team, including the six graduating seniors and return to KSU to meet the 1950-51 varsity 
in the opening game to be played in the new Men's Health and Physical Education building 
next fall.

¥iiUon guarding closely as Klaisner and Haverstock prepare for defe 

ring Ohio Vniversiiy game, December 19. 

This season was Coach Dave McDowell's second year at the reins 
of the local five. Under his tutorship the Golden Flashes have com- 
piled a record of 38 wins and 12 losses over the last two seasons. 

On the top of the KSU scoring column this year, as last, was center 
Leroy Thompson. "Tommy" rolled in 296 tallies this season. He holds 
three KSU scoring records. Last year's season total of 436 was an all- 
time high as was his 35 point total in one game also accomplished 
last year. He also owns the four-year scoring record of 1120 points. 

Captain of this year's squad was forward Fred Klaisner, another 
four -year man. Klaisner set the former season-scoring record in the 
1947-48 campaign. This year Fred accounted for 202 Blue and Gold 

Rounding out the list of four-year lettermen was Dale Haver- 
stock. He finished second highest with 278. Dale captained last 
year's quintet. 

John CoUver acquired the nickname "Iceman," because of his 
apparent coolness in all situations, but he was warm enough to col- 
lect 210 points. He led the Flashes in percentage from the foul line. 

Jerry Amico alternated with Collver and Klaisner at the offensive 
positions. He wound up the season as third highest scorer with 220 

George Fulton is only five feet, eight, but he was a life-saver 
several times this season. His 21 points against Akron in Wills gym 
was the deciding factor in the un-zipping of the Zippers. He collect- 
ed 192 points and will return for action next season.

Undefeated and state champions are Kent State's 1950 wrestlers. 

This year the KSU grapplers went through nine dual meets without a setback. 
They took the state championship on the basis of their perfect record. 

It marked the second time that they have been state champions, having held 
the crown in 1933. It was also their fourth undefeated season under Coach Joe 

He has completed 18 seasons as mentor of the local matmen and has com- 
piled probably the greatest record of any coach in the country. 

Through the years, Begala's teams have piled up a total of 140 victories, 23 
losses and one tie, for a percentage of .853. 

New to the current squad were the Universities of Chicago and Pittsburgh. 
Flash teams of the past had met each of these squads once and defeated them 

Tough and experienced as the opposition was, the Begalamen, who were well 
trained and ready for each battle, had little trouble with any of their foes. 

Strongest opposition was supplied by the University of Pittsburgh. Against 
the Panthers the local matmen dropped three of eight bouts, but still managed 
to edge them by six points. 

Showing complete mastery over three teams, the Staters shut out Akron uni- 
versity, University of Chicago and Findlay college. 

As a climax to a great season, the tusslers went to the Interstate champion- 
ships in Cleveland in search of wider fame. 

Three out-of-state squads, Waynesburg college, Michigan State college and 
Lockhaven State Teachers college outdid the Staters who tied for fourth place 
with Wheaton college and Case Tech, the tournament host. 

Kent has walked off with the Interstate title eight times since the meet was 
first held 17 years ago.

John Milkorich of KSV pins AUke Smith of FinJlay college in 135 pound mMch in meet of Fchr, 



^ing Findlciy meet, Febr^mry 25. 

One of the outstanding veterans was Co-captain Mike 
Slepecky. He scored five pins and two decisions 
for 31 points in the 145-pound class. In 1941 he won 
his division in the interstate meet and was runner up 
that year's NCAA meet. 

The other co-captain was John Milkovich, another 
three-year man. He scored two pins and a decision 
for 13 points in the 155-pound class. 

Jack Shrimplin had a consistent season in the 121- 
pound bracket. Shrimplin had two pins, four decisions, 
a forfeit and a tie for 29 points in this, his fourth 
year on the squad. 

Ralph Wilson, who battles the 136-pounders, add- 
ed two pins and four decisions to the total. Wilson 
also holds three grappling letters. 

Joe Klosterman, l65-pounder, led all the wrestlers 
in scoring with 36 points including five pins. 

Reliable at 175 pounds was Gil Dubray. He pinned 
three opponents and decisioned four more. Awarded 
a forfeit victory, he placed high in the scoring column 
with 32 points. 

Rick Mihaleye took 19 points in the 128-pound 
bracket with two falls and three decisions. He alter- 
nated with Tom Hansen who added two more pins 
and a decision. 

Dick Kline saw action in several heavyweight 
bouts, collecting two decisions and a pin. Les Irwin 
took Kline's place in three meets and gathered as 
many decisions. 

Chuck Russell entered four meets at 136-pounds 
winning a fall and two decisions. Bill Fritzsche took 
one decision in three l65-pound assignments. 

Also seeing action this year were Pat Capretta, 155; 
Ray Sanders, 145; John Redfern, 155 and Gene 
Meyers, 165, all with one decision in one appearance. 

Rounding out the squad were Ben Appel, Lou Krin- 
sky, Nick Milkovich and Nat Simon. 


Splashing their way to ten victo- 
ries in thirteen starts and placing 
second in the Ohio conference meet 
and the Fenn relays, the 1950 Flash 
swim team ended the season near 
the top in Ohio collegiate swim- 
ming circles. 

Standouts were Don Wilson, 440, 
Captain Paul Thompson, 50 and 
100 yard freestyler, and Joe Kotys, 
Ohio diving champion.

Despite its youth, Kent's Gym 
team has helped place the Blue and 
Gold on the national spoits map. 

During the past year Coach Vic 
Moore's Olympic star, Joe Kotys, 
performed as a one-man team and 
was named all-around athlete in the 
N. C. A. A. finals while giving Kent 
a fourth place.

Paced by Coach Pete George, Kent State's weightlifting team has established themselves as a 
national power. 

The team, last year's National Intercollegiate Champions, features world record holder Pete 
George whose specialty is the 181 pound class, Dick Giller, 165 pound State champion, and 
Carl Conti, who placed second in thel32 pound class during the Mid West Championship. 

Having placed second in the Mid "West Championships during the year, the team will act as 
hosts for the first annual National Intercollegiate championships.

Maintaining predominance as the most athletic organization on cam- 
pus, Sigma Nu continued to dominate Vic Moore's intramural program. 

The past year saw Sigma Nu win trophies as All-University champs 
in basketball, wrestling and volleyball. The fraternity also copped the 
intra-fraternity crown in touch football. 

Baseball champs for the past year were Gamma Tau Delta during 
the spring portion, and Phi Beta Phi for the summer season. 

Touch football saw Twin Lakes crack the jinx that had plagued the 
independent athletes for many years, defeating Sigma Nu 7-0, for the 
All-University football championship. 

In basketball it was again Twin Lakes who provided the "Greeks " 
with opposition in the finals, but luck had run out and the boys from up 
the road met defeat at the hands of Sigma Nu 52-39. 

Swimming ended in a four-way tie and no team champion was 
chosen. A flip of the coin gave Delta Upsilon the nod for the trophy 
over Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Gamma Theta and Sigma Nu. 

The growing list of activities provided by the intra-mural depart- 
ment saw still another event added when Independent and Fraternit)' 
bowling leagues were formed. 

Under the capable eye of Vic Moore, the Intramural scheme of the 
"Blue and Gold" has grown and filled its place successfully in the Kent 
State picture. 


With the end of another successful season the different W. A. A. spon- 
sored athletic events added much to the overall health and condition- 
ing program of the university. 

Dormitory, sorority and off-campus teams took part in such events 
as field hockey, volleyball, basketball, badminton, tennis, archery, golf 
and soft ball. 

Team champions decided to date of writing were Moulton hall in 
volleyball, Off -campus I in basketball and Engleman hall in badminton. 

Other athletic functions of the general intramural program are the 
Sharks club, who annually put on a swimming extravaganza, and the 
Modern Dance club, who further the poise and coordination of young 
college women. 

The male does not completely dominate in the inter-coUegiate circles 
of KSU because all-star teams in field hockey, basketball and volley- 
ball, have engaged in several contests with neighboring schools. 

In field hockey the "Amazons" of Kent State defeated Mount Union 
and fell before Lake Erie College for Women. 

The basketball team went undefeated, posting wins over Hiram and 
Lake Erie. 

In volleyball the Flashes lost their first round Lake Erie tournament 
start to Lake Erie College, 29-28.

Phi Deuteron chapter here claims several widely different dis- 
tinctions. They are, or claim to be, intellectuals, having actually 
won the Inter-Fraternity Council's Scholarship trophy. Almost all 
of them are doing service for the university on one or more of 
such things as elections, allocations, music and entertainment 
committees, student council. Booster club, student publications, 
etc. At the same time, they lay claim to keeping the "happiest 
house on campus." All of which is a neat trick, if they can do it, 
since the chapter is still an upstart as far as age of fraternities 
goes, having been born April 9, 1949- 

The chapter won the scholarship trophy for '48-'49 by studying 
like mad. The members are now studying the same way with the 
idea of winning it again and have it as a gleaming reminder in the 
trophy case. During the breaks in the studying, they undertake 
such activities as small weekend gatherings, one formal every 
fall and spring plus several house parties every quarter. 

New furniture and a modern decor, besides the usual fraternity 
fellowship, help to uphold the "happiest House" claim. 

Dr. Meinke and Mr. Weiskopf are advisors.

Formed from members of the YMCA on campus in 1931, this is 
the fourth oldest fraternity here. The original idea was a scholastic 
organization but in 1939 the group changed over to a social frat, 
branched out into other fields and became one of the bunch. 

Still retaining some of the brains of former times, they have 
won the Inter-Frat Council Scholarship trophy about half of the 
years it has been offered, the last time being '47-'48. 

The fraternity awards annually the Beta Manhood Key to a 
June graduate (male, of course) for such upstanding character- 
istics as scholarship, leadership and character. 

Each year a Freshman Sweetheart is chosen to reign at the Beta 
Ball in the fall. Besides the ball, two formals are annual events, one 
in the winter and the other in the spring. 

In recent years the house has had a good going over. A new 
roof was installed, the third floor was insulated and redecorated 
and the whole place given a coat of paint inside and out. 

Zeta Psi, an international fraternity, has been dickering with 
the group recently and the Betas think the negotiations are going 
favorably. They plan to try for the annual cash scholarship awards 
when they finally go national.

This is the Delta Omega chapter, accomplished after four years 
of dickering with the national organization. It was brought on 
campus February 25, 1950. 

Besides the nationalization, the Delts have worked hard on 
such things as athletics, Pork Barrel, taking the cup in that one. 
Homecoming and Campus Day. They also won the Inter-fra- 
ternity trophy for athletics. 

Social activities include two formal dances during the year be- 
sides the usual house parties. The traditional early morning 
Christmas serenade with the Delta Gammas fell through, but they 
had breakfast with them on the last day of the fall quarter. 

They didn't quite win the Inter-Frat Council Scholarship tro- 
phy, but they were reasonably close. They'll try again next year, 
like all the others. 

Seven of the Delts were in Blue Key, national service fraternity, 
and two of these were officers. Others were on the Burr and Stater 
staffs, and one was on the Publications Policy committee. 

During the fall, the house received a coat of paint, and a 
Christmas tree was added just before the holidays. 

Professor James A. Fosdick, a Delt alumnus from Hillsdale 
college is the advisor. •

The K-painting fraternity, oldest on campus, was founded 28 
years ago as the Kappa Mu Kappa, but finally went national 
December 28, 1948. Since then they have gone as a group to 
spend weekends with new chapters at Bowling Green and 
Dennison universities. 

On Campus Day they out-did themselves, winning the float 
trophy and second place in the songfest. 

Besides all that, they won second place in athletics and the 
ping-pong and library trophies, the latter for having the greatest 
number of books available at the house for members to read. 

Although they didn't win the Inter-Frat Council Scholarship 
trophy, they too, will try again in the future. 

They are receiving help in finding a new house from the Delta 
Upsilon association, a group of local citizens, and friends and 
relatives. They have hopes of being able to move into a new place 
by September, 1950. 

During the fall quarter, the DU's sponsored the Don Cossack 
chorus, a brave thing to do in these Red-phobia times. 

Larry Laraway, Bob Eckelberry and Gene Harrison made up 
the Delta Upsilon trio, while Funnyboy Gene Mekler furnished 
a certain brand of humor for the boys.

Theta Kappa Phi, formerly the Friar's before affiliation with the 
national on December 4, 1949, is the university's Catholic social 
fraternity. The original Friar's club, organized in October, 1947, 
became a fraternity in April, 1949. 

The Theta Kappas have donated more to the Memorial Stadium 
Fund drive than any other fraternity. Most of their donation 
came from the SI 000 proceeds from the Spike Jones revue. 

Social events include the Fall, Gold Cup and Sweetheart for- 
mals, the latter two being held in the winter and spring quarters 
respectively. Smaller affairs are house parties, a farewell party, 
Senior breakfast and banquets and parties between pledges and 

Membership of the fraternity is 64, including 20 alums. 

Honorary members are; The Reverend John W. Cunningham, 
pastor of St. Patrick's church, Kent; Charles J. Storkan, instructor 
of accounting and Francis J. Kerwin, Kent city auditor. 

The fraternity publishes a monthly booklet by and for members.

An oldie. Kappa Sigma Chi originated as the Independents club 
in 1929, and later took the present name as the Greek equiva- 
lent of KSC, the initials of the university at the time. 

They claim an unusually large number of presidents on campus, 
including: Marty Pfinsgrafl, Eob Wallace, Bill Kalaher and Tom 
Welsh, who are heads of the senior class, Alpha Psi Omega, na- 
tional dramatics honorary, Blue Key and Men's Union, respec- 
tively. Welsh is also president of the fraternity as well as head of 
the social committee. Kalaher was elected Most Popular Man. 

In the last three Campus Day celebrations they have taken two 
firsts and a second in the songfest and a trophy for the parade. 

Their renditions of Hospodi Pomiloi and Meadowlands are 
well known on campus. Also in the musical line, they sponsor 
the annual Concert in Modern Jazz. 

Each year they choose their sweetheart at the Winter formal. 
This year they collaborated with Sigma Nu for the inter-frater- 
nity homecoming. 

Besides men on the varsity football, baseball, swimming and 
track teams, sailors Blankenship and Radabaugh took first place 
in the Rowboat Regatta. 

They are dickering with Kappa Sigma, national fraternity.

Pinups, mural size, are the dominant characteristics of the Phi 
Beta Phi house. They were painted on all the upstairs walls when 
the house was redecorated recently. 

Other achievements of the Phi Bets during the past year are; 
second straight Duke of Kent trophy, summer session softball 
league, responsibility for an all-university dance at Meyer's Lake, 
Canton, treating a group of under-privileged children to a ball 
game in Cleveland, with hot-dogs, too, and first place in the 
Homecoming House Decoration contest. 

At the present, they are trying to become affiliated with na- 
tional Sigma Chi. 

They have three men listed in "Who's Who" in American 
Colleges and four men in Blue Key, national service honorary. 

Some of the busier Phi Betas are members of student council, 
two have been Editor of the Stater in the past year, and one was 
Business Manager of the Stater. Besides, John Kapioltas was pres- 
ident of the junior class. 

Although they didn't quite win the Inter-Frat Council's Schol- 
arship trophy, they tried.

In the second year of the fraternity's existence, the Phi Gams are 
beginning to make a name for their organization. They copped 
first place in the '49 Penny Carnival with a take of S85 from their 
casino. In addition, the second annual Cage Carnival, starring the 
Cleveland Browns, netted the Memorial Stadium Drive fund 
some S400. 

They purchased furniture and redecorated the home on Main 
street last fall. 

The fraternity has members on many of the sports rosters, in 
service organizations and on student publications. 

Main attractions of the social life of the fraternity are the 
annual Corduroy and Tweed dance in the spring and the 
Founder's Day banquet in April. 

Since they are still only a local, their dickerings are being con- 
ducted with the national Phi Gamma Delta. 

Comparatively new on campus, they were founded as a club in 
April, 1947, and accepted as a fraternit)' in April, 1948.

Starting as a club with the blessings of the national in March, 
1948, Phi Kappa Tau was accepted as a fraternity by the univer- 
sity in March, 1949, and by the national in the following May. 

On Campus day, besides the float with a Greek building on top 
and warriors around, the vocal group sang a number which has 
helped to identify them since: title was "Street Urchin's Medley". 

They too missed out on the Inter-Frat council's Scholarship 

Social activities last year included the Founder's Day banquet 
at the Mayflower in Akron and Spring formal at Lake Forest 
country club. Annie Smith reigned as Phi Tau Sweetheart at the 
formal. Similar events were scheduled this year, the Founder's Day 
banquet being held at Acacia and the formal at Lake Forest again. 

During the spring of '49 the fraternity was instrumental in the 
creation of the new campus political party, Nu-K. In the fall, they 
succeeded in placing one of their men on Men's union under the 
new party. 

Dale Thrush, president, was the representative from Kent at 
the L F. C. convention in Washington, D. C.

The second oldest on campus as Delta Phi Sigma, Sigma Nu was 
also the second national on campus, as of March 19, 1949. 

Originally the "Athletic" fraternity, they have, in recent years, 
tended to round out the membership to include men in other 
fields, such as honorary and service clubs, publications, etc. 

By trying the house note plan, they became the first fraternity 
on campus to own their house, mortgage free. 

Social events of the year include two formals and the Scummer's 
hops. The hops are hard times affairs at which the pledges per- 
form for the actives. 

The big event of the year is the inter-fraternity homecoming 
game in conjunction with Kappa Sigma Chi. Festivities included 
a parade before the game, refreshments, half-time entertain- 
ments and presentation of Queen Nancy Hise and her attendants, 
Marilyn Ohrgren and Miriam Mitchell. The Sigma Nu's, inci- 
dentally, won the game. 

They also won cups for football, wrestling, volleyball and soft-

Another of the campus upstarts, so far as age of the fraternit)' 
goes, Tau Kappa, like the university, is still looking around for 

At present, the members are thrashing out the nationalization 
problem, besides looking for a permanent house to land in. 

Biggest activity of the year is the Snow-Ball ball. Ronald 
Reagan, movie actor, chose the queen and her attendants this 
year. Decorations were along a winter theme, with snow-balls 
and men. 

Tau Kappa has members in many phases of student activities, 
including traffic court, publications and student committees. 

Some of the members seem to prefer love to love of freedom, 
at least six of them having given pins to one or more coeds or 
hometown girls. Favorite pastime among the brothers is group 
singing. There must be a connection. 

Tau Kappa was formed as a club in November, 1947, and ac- 
credited as a fraternity in February, 1949, making it one of the 
youngest on campus. 

They hope to be nationalized, fraternity wise, by the end of 
this year.

Interfraternity Council 

Composed of die president and an elected member of each fra- 
ternity, Interfraternity council is the governing body for frater- 
nities on campus. 

The best known single function of the council is the awarding 
each spring of the Interfraternity Council Scholarship cup to the 
fraternity having the highest point average during the preceding 
two quarters. 

Publication of a booklet to acquaint freshmen with fraternities 
is another annual function of the council. 

This was the first year that the council has sent a representative 
to the National Interfraternity council meeting in Washington. 
D. C. 

The council also controls rushing, pledging, and acts as a go- 
between for the fraternities and the administration. 

The advisor to the group is Dean R. E. Manchester.

Registration in the College of Business Administration is 
the main project of the pledge classes of Delta Sigma Pi, 
national professional fraternity. Beta Pi chapter was founded 
in 1942 by students within the business field and is one of 
78 chapters in the United States and Canada. 

The purpose of the fraternity is to foster the study 
of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social 
activity and the association of students for their mutual 
advancement by research and practice; to promote closer 
affiliation between the commercial world and the students 
of commerce and to further higher standards of commercial 
ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of 
the community. 

Meetings are held every Thursday when prominent 
authorities in special fields speak on business. Field trips 
through industrial plants and business establishments high- 
light the year's activities. Banquets were held 3 times a 
quarter, a Christmas party was held on December 10 and 
a picnic was held for members during the summer. 

Membership requirement for the fraternity is enroll- 
ment in the School of Business Administration and a 2.5 
cumulative average. Pledge classes start in the fall and 
winter quarters for a period of four weeks.

Alpha Phi Omega was formed in March, 1949, for the purpose of serving campus and 
community. Composed of members formerly connected with the scouting movement, the 
fraternity has sponsored service activities such as ushering for NTFC and placing assist- 
ant scout masters in local troops. 

APO's chief functions were helping other groups in their activities and sponsoring 
university events, rather than competing in them.

This year the Art club began a weekly news- 
paper called the Easel. Edited by C. Kurt Smo- 
len, it contained art news, cartoons, art editor- 
ials, features and general art club news. 

Plans for installation of an art honorary 
fraternity were made this year. It is to be call- 
ed Alpha Sigma. The letters stand for Art 
Scholarship and membership will be limited 
to art majors and minors whose point average 
in art courses is 3.0 or better. 

Scheduled for the spring quarter was the 
combined Arts Festival sponsored by the Art 
department which included all the arts repre- 
sented in the university. This was an art dis- 
play by the whole university and the Art club 
supported the project.

Arts Club 

On campus since 1932, the Industrial Arts club has, in 
the past two years, received the applause of the entire 
student body when Pork Barrel presentations were made. 
In 1949 as well as 1948 the club was the winner of the 
independent division trophy for its well prepared and 
executed skit. 

This year's activities for the club were many. Included 
on its calendar were: the Industrial Arts Club Hobby 
night, many vocational education speakers, their Senior 
banquet, barn dances and a yearly picnic at Virginia 
Kendall park. 

One of the functions of the organization is the pub- 
lication of the "NEOIAN", North Eastern Ohio Indus- 
trial Arts News, each quarter. Advisors for the 18 year- 
old organization are E. W. Tischendorf and M. O.

Spending more time in the darkroom than they do outdoors, these people, to whom a 
camera is part of their right arm, can be identified by their pallid complexion and the 
odor of hypo emanating from them. 

Grouping together under the advisorship of Professor James A. Fosdick for the past 
three years, the Camera club enjoys many field trips to near-by localities for specialized 
talks and general picture shooting. 

Salons are held monthly with students and outside judges giving critical comment. The 
first prize print is displayed in Rockwell library. Exhibitions in the spring and winter 
show more of the club's photographic art to KSU.

From a daily prayer meeting of three students, Inter -Varsity Christian Fellowship has 
grown since its organization in 1946 to a recognized club of about 30 members. 

The principal aim of this non-denominational group is to strengthen the spiritual side 
of living by a close study of the Bible. Besides a daily, student-conducted prayer meeting, 
the group holds weekly Bible study gatherings. Activities included an all-university hay 
ride, picnics and guest musicians. 


S. A. M. 

Early in 1947 a group of upper-division students in the College of 
Business Administration organized the Kent chapter of the Society of 
the Advancement of Management. The purpose of this organization is 
to conduct study among its members in order to better understand the 
scientific principles of modern management. 

Events of the past year included the appearance of U. S. Mediator 
Cyrus Ching as a guest speaker, a one-day conference involving Western 
Reserve university and Case Institute of Technology, and the inaugura- 
tion of an industrial film series. The films shown are produced by indus- 
trial firms and trade organizations. 

The society is a national professional association of management 
people in industry, commerce, government and education.

Kent State university's chapter of the American Newspaper Guild boasts the largest enroll- 
ment of any college associate chapter. In recent years, the KSU Guild has appeared several 
times in the "Guild Reporter," union paper, which is distributed from coast to coast to all 
Guild members. 

The ANG is open to all who are interested in the field of journalism, and provides 
speakers, experienced men in this field, to talk on the various phases of newspaper work. 

Social events are also provided several times a year by the members. 


From 55 members at the time of its conception 
by Merle E. Wagoner in 1927, the Varsity "K" 
club has grown to include some 900, including 
present actives and alumni. 

Requirement for membership is the posses- 
sion of a varsity "K" for any sport. 

Among the activities of the club are spon- 
sorship of "K" day in the spring. At that time 
several athletic events are scheduled to show off 

the current crop of athletes and provide nostal- 
gic enterainment for alumni. The alumni also 
are guests at a complimentary luncheon and 
view movies of the past year's athletic events. 

Youths interested in attending Kent are also 
guests of the club on "K"day. 

November 12 was set aside as Merle Wa- 
goner day to honor the founder on his leaving 
the university.

in student activity funds during three quarters, 
Student council, governing student group, was 
probably the most important organization on 

Taking office in April, 1949, Council handled 
most of its business through committees. Meeting 
every Tuesday at four pm, it laboriously checked 
through minutes of organizations that received 

Among the activities of student government 
during '49-' 50 were Campus day, class officer elec- 
tions in November, Homecoming day, Christmas 
dance, Frosh elections in January, Top Hop in Feb- 
ruary, and Council elections in April. A new stu- 
dent government constitution was nearly completed. 
The K-book for Freshmen was written in a new 
form. Council also handled issues affecting the 
students' welfare and social life.

Scabbard and Blade 

To spread intelligent information concerning the military requirements of our country in 
time of peace and war has been the idea upon which the Scabbard and Blade Military society 
was formed. The members of this group strive also to be prepared to take a more active part 
and to have greatet influence in the affairs of each individual community. 

Serving as honor guard for the Homecoming queen and executing a fail retreat ceremony 
are examples of the type of service rendered to the university by this organization. Member- 
ship is limited exclusively to members of the advanced course of the R. O. T. C. All pledges 
have a B grade in R. O. T. C. subjects and at least a 2.0 in all others. 

At present there are 35 members in this society. Two delegates represented the Kent chap- 
ter at the national conference of Scabbard and Blade in Pittsburgh. KSU's chapter is desig- 
nated as Company M of the 8th Regiment. 

Lt. Colonel Wall, R. O. T. C. commanding officer and Captain Charles M. Schade, instruct- 
or, act as this organizations advisots.

University Theater 

Membership in University Theater reached an all- 
time high this year with more than 400 members. 
The club was organized in 1930 by Professor E. 
Turner Stump, head of the school of speech, to pro- 
vide the general student body an opportunity to 
see good and varied dramatic productions by fellow 
students and to provide dramatic aspirants an 
opportunity to work on plays. 

The addition, this year, of Cider and Donuts re- 

ception on stage during the fall quarter, Coffee 
Time after each production and the UT formal in 
the new Student Union building in February have 
helped to foster a greater unity of spirit between 
the active dramatists and the general student 

Plays presented this year were Wanhope Build- 
ing, John Loves Mary, Family Portrait and the 
Philadelphia Story.

Topics such as "Gambling Doesn't Pay," "Marriage" and "How Episcopalians Got That 
Way," make the Tuseday meetings of the Lutheran Student Fellowship far from dull. 

Brief vesper services are held at every meeting together with worship services and re- 

The outstanding function of the group is the annual "Town and Gown" banquet at 
which members of two Kent churches, the Faith and Lutheran, put on a dinner for the 
student group.

Service and fellowship, on and off campus, are the main ideas of the YWCA. 

In the service capacity, Christmas baskets were made up and distributed to the needy 
families in Kent. Hours were spent in making stuffed animals for the children. 

In the fellowship capacity, the YWCA went to Cleveland to see the Metropolitan opera 
and to visit the Hanna theater.

The Methodist Student Movement on campus consists of all 
the Methodist-sponsored groups here: Kappa Phi, the girl's 
group; Matched Twain, the married-couples club; Wesley 
Foundation; and Sigma Theta Epsilon, the men's group. 

A drive to obtain $50,000 for the construction of a Meth- 
odist student center here was begun in October. This is part of 
a state-wide campaign by the Methodist church to bring stu- 
dent centers to five Ohio universities. 

Christmas was a busy time for the Methodist groups on 
campus. The Christmas banquet with Arlyn and George Het- 
tinger heading the committee was very successful. 

As part of the Christmas program all the groups cooper- 
ated in presenting music and drama in tune with the holiday 
spirit. The Wesley choir presented a carol concert; Kappa Phi 
presented skits in cooperation with Sigma Theta Epsilon and 
the whole group put on Charles Dickens' "Christmas Carol." 

A "Kiddies party" was held for the children in the area with 
a Christmas tree, Santa Claus and gifts for all the children.

NevN^man Club 

Founded in 1937, the Newman club has grown until to- 
day it has close to 300 members. The aim of this organ- 
ization has been to offer to all Roman Catholic students 
a balanced program of religious, intellectual and social 

A primary function of the group is to practice religion 
as a body accomplished by Mass, Communion and a year- 
ly retreat at St. Patricks church, where the club meets. 
Besides these, three days each year are set aside for com- 
plete spiritual recollection. 

Included in each year's social activities are two all- 
university formals. The second annual Pilgrim Prom, 
held at the Aurora country club, was attended by 70 
couples. The installation banquet was held soon after the 
election of new officers. 

Much effort is expended annually by the Kent chapter 
each year in promoting closer cooperation with Newman 
clubs in nearby cities. Several joint events have been en- 
joyed by the clubs of Kent and Akron. The dedication 
service of the Akron University chapter's center at St. 
Bernard's church was attended by several representatives 
of KSU.

Led by the Reverend Laten Carter, UCF enjoyed 
a successful year of religious activity. The "Uni- 
versity hour" was held every Sunday at 9:30 
a.m. in the Training School auditorium. 

The group also took part in the United 
Christian Fellowship retreat at Chagrin Valley 
camp. The theme of the retreat was "The Ser- 
ious Christian Student on Campus". 

Discussions such as, "Lack of Dating at KSU" 
and participation in the Conference of the 
State Baptist and Disciples Student commission 
in Columbus also were part of UCF's program 
this year. 

"Christmas Under the Stars," a one-act play, 
directed by Bob MacDonald was presented dur- 
ing the pre-holiday season. An all-university 
roller skating party at the Moon-Glo rink was 
very successful. UCF was represented at the 
Westminster Foundations in Columbus.

Sigma Theta Epsilon was formed in February, 1949, under the 
direction of the National Office of Delta Sigma Theta, and on 
June 4, 1949, the national president installed the Sigma chapter 
with twenty four charter members. 

This organization then operated under the name of Sigma chap- 
ter of Delta Sigma Theta. In September, 1949, the name Delta 
Sigma Theta was officially changed to Sigma Theta Epsilon, and 
this local chapter retained its Sigma chapter designation. 

It is a religious-social fraternity. New pledges are initiated in 
December and May of each academic year. 

Each February the "Sweetheart's ball" is held by the group. 
June fourth is celebrated as Founder's day with a dinner-dance. 
On Homecoming, an open-air barbecue was held in honor of the 
returning alumni. 

A formal dance was held at the Aurora country club on De- 
cember 3, 1949. 

Nine pledges were inducted as active members on December 
6 at a candlelight initiation service. 

At present there are 30 active members and ten alumni mem- 
bers. During the winter and spring quarters of 1950 the group 
took an active part in all university intra-mural activities and 
several service projects.

This year's half-time entertainment — including um- 
brella effects avec lights to the tune of "Singing In the 
Rain" — kept the Kent State University Twin March- 
ing bands far ahead of any like organizations in this 

The bands also provided half-time entertainment 
at away football games and made very fine showings at 
Bowling Green and Ohio university. 

The marching bands are under the direction of 
Professor Roy D. Metcalf as is the concert band. 

The concert band has grown to over one hundred 
members and has played in all the major cities of 
Northeastern Ohio and has taken an active part in the 
Ohio Inter-Collegiate Band festivals of which it has 
been a charter member since 1934. 

Originality is the keynote with the KSU marching 
bands. At half-time during the Central Michigan 
game an original tableau written by Bob West, enact- 
ed by the two bands and narrated by Ray Moran was 
presented. It represented the rise of Kent State uni- 
versity from a small normal school to the present time 
showing the sun, with its diverging rays in the form 
of the Kent State university seal. 

Chief drum major, Don Peacock, calls the turns 
for Nella Jean Wise, head majorette, and the line of 
silver-stick-twirling prancers Joyce Conkle, Janet 
Rogers, Peggy Snyder and Pauline Dyrdek.

A Cappella Choir 

Declared by many in professional music circles 
to excel as a college group, the Kent State uni- 
versity A Cappella choir, under the direction of 
Caro M. Carapetyan, maintains the highest 
standard of choral singing and music interper- 

The group makes many off-campus "treks" 
to perform for church and civic organizations 
and for other colleges. In addition, during East- 
er time, the choir presents Bach's St. Matthew 
Passion play and they also take part in the an- 
nual Severence hall Easter concert in Cleveland. 
The traditional singing of the Messiah takes 
top billing. In this presentation, both the Uni- 
versity chorus and the orchestra, with Walter 
Cerveny conducting, combine with the choir to 
give two performances to accommodate increas- 
ed demand.

Named for a former president of the university, 
Engleman hall is the newest women's dormitory 
on campus. Built in a "W" shape to facilitate 
further expansion design, it is connected by a 
tunnel to the student union building where the 
220 junior and senior residents dine. 

Winning Pork Barrel and Penny Carnival 
last year, the upperclass girls have been con- 

tinually successful in school activities. The 
annual Engleman formal, where the Prince of 
Engleman was crowned by Hall President Sue 
Lieberman, and a dance with Stopher hall men 
were the high points of the social season. Christ- 
mas and Homecoming decorations also took 
their share of attention during the year.

After living their freshman year in Moulton 
hall, "sophisticated" sophomore women pack 
their bags and move over to Lowry hall. Hous- 
ing about 150 residents, it is the oldest dormi- 
tory on campus. While the majority of girls 
staying in this dorm are sophomores, a small 
number of frosh and upper class women also 
live there. 

Lowry provides dining facilities for Moulton 

hall women as well as its own in the east wing" 
dining room, while off-campus students eat in 
the west wing cafeteria. 

Taking part in all important school activi- 
ties, it participated in Campus Day parade. 
Homecoming festivities and NTFC, to name a 
few. Its Christmas decorations were among the 
most beautiful on campus.

The firepla 

As the home away from home for over 200 
freshman women, Moulton hail serves to intro- 
duce the proverbially bewildered young co-ed to 
college life. Quickly falling into the swing of 
classes and social activities, these women attend 
teas, start to join sororities and clubs, and soon 
begin to date. 

Sponsoring at least one social activity per 
month, the girls also took part in many school 
wide competitions such as NTFC, Penny Carni- 

val and Campus Dav parade. They also gave a 
formal dance, "Fantasy m Frost," in January in 
the Student Union. A Christmas party was held, 
and keen rivalry resulted for prizes for the best 
decorated corridors, lounges and rooms. 

Mrs. Eleanor Lallance was house mother for 
the fifth year, and introduced the girls to the 
intricacies of signing in and out. Another phase 
of college life were the mop and bucket parties 
the girls staged Saturday afternoons.

The executive board, functioning section of 
Women's league, serves all university women, 
who are officially members of the league. They 
are represented on the board by members from 
the dorms, Women's Athletic association, 
YWCA, Pan-Hellenic council, social commit- 
tee and Student council. 

The league gives the university women a 
voice in self-government and a part in the 
student court. 

The Big-Little Sister tea and the Senior Wom- 
en's banquet, in the fall and spring quarters 
respectively, come under the sponsorship of the 
league, while collaboration with Men's union 
produces Pork Barrel.

The men's self-governing board at KSU is Men's union which is composed of twenty 
members: four elected members from each class, four officers and two holdover members. 

Formerly, MU overlooked men's rooming houses, ran intra-mural athletics and was 
very active in serving the men students of the university. Since the war, most of its func- 
tions have been absorbed into permanent offices, but since 19-45, MU has been staging a 
gradual comeback. 

MU together with "Women's league co-sponsors Pork Barrel, the all-student variety 
show, during the winter quarter. During this winter quarter it made an attempt to elimi- 
nate razors on campus by staging a beard-growing contest. The President's banquet was 
held in the spring quarter for all the heads of campus organizations. The parking problem 
for commuters and student residents was discussed. 

Present composition of MU is extremely political, being composed of 4 independents, 
3 Nu-K and 13 Blue and Gold members.

Blue and Gold 


Long the dominant factor in campus politics, the Blue and 
Gold political party swept two out of three general elections 
in the past year. 

Composed of Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Phi, Chi Omega, 
Delta Zeta and Gamma Phi Beta sororities, and Alpha 
Epsilon Pi, Alpha Phi Beta, Kappa Sigma Chi, Phi Beta 
Phi, Sigma Nu and Tau Kappa fraternities, Blue and Gold 
political policy has been to turn out the party members in 
a solid vote. 

Its platform can be expressed as bringing campus pol- 
itics to a position of prominence and integrity, responsi- 
ble and representative student government with capable 
candidates, better student-faculty relations, a big-time ath- 
letic program and revision of the student government's

A political parry composed of seven campus organizations, 
Nu-K was organized early in 1949 to provide political 
representation for the member groups. It was founded from 
the wreckage of the old Blue Star party. 

Organizations making up the party are; Alpha Gamma 
Delta, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Upsilon, Delta Gamma, Delta 
Tau Delta, Phi Gamma Theta and Phi Kappa Tau. 

The executive council of the party, composed of two 
representatives from each group, meets bi-weekly at the 
house of one of the organizations. 

Highlights of the year were a pre-election torchlight 
parade and a party.

S. D. E. 


Organized on campus in the fall quarter, the S. D. E. social club was formed by a group 
of transfer students from Kent State Canton. The members had been associating together 
as a group for over two years. 

The first in a series of annual Christmas parties was held in Canton over winter vaction, 
and the first formal was held during the spring quarter. 

Hunting for a house and "Hubbing" were daily occupations for all members of Sigma 
Delta Epsilon.

After fighting Gremlins who stole pencils, misplaced copy and 
pictures and made staff members forgetful for a whole year, the 
staff of the 1950 Chestnut Burr is proud to have produced this 

Staffers will, no doubt, carry varying memories of this past year, 
which many of them characterized as "The busiest year of my 
life." They will remember: 

Mr. Carleton J. Smyth, faculty publications advisor, who took 
responsibility for some of our ill-advised moves, and very patient- 
ly and sincerely helped us surmount the obstacles of learning how 
to print a book. 

The pleadings of the editor to "Turn in your stuff on time" 
and his wild rantings to the effect that "It won't fit!" 

Fred Nader, business manager, and his cohort, Ted Chernak, 
who very quietly and very promptly met all Burr expenses, but 
not without question. 

Associate editor, Brian McNamara, who wrote, rewrote and 
guarded copy, and did his share of hair-pulling over misspellings 
and poor English. 

Self-effacing production manager Sol P. Baltimore, who was 
most famous for his reminders to staff members about late copy. 

Harry Griffiths' art work, and the whole art staff, who could 
produce a needed piece of art overnight if necessary. 

Sporn: D„n FruJ,,,.,,, .mj Ned lU-.nUp. 



Bill Poor, publicity director, and his down-trodden staff. Their 
experiences with the Burr dance alone would fill two pages this 

Chuck Finley, the "Grandma Mose" of photography, and the 
largest photographic staff in the history of the Chestnut Burr. 
Bob Phillips, faculty photographer, and his anguished cries for 
number four paper. 

Don Bickel and his efficient group who always got their lay- 
out work done on time without question or comment. 

Larry Marchesano, advertising manager, with his "Where's 
the hedge?" which enlivened the office. • 

Maxine Schell, private secretary to the editor, and Exchange 
Editor for the Burr, and her open-house in the cramped Burr 
office when the book was completed. 

Sue Lieberman, photo secretary, who made this her third year 
on the Burr. Bonna Daisher, secretary making up the student in- 
dex whenever she had a spare moment. 

Leo Damore, organizations editor, for whom all stopped work 
when he entered the office. Elsie Jakubjansky and Al Denholm 
for their handling of the Greek section. 

Neil Heaslip and his assistant, Don Friedman, for their quiet 
and rapid handling of the sports section.
